So I started Tales of Symphonia 2....I'm not sure what possessed me to do this. I hate Emil, he is a horrible main character. The whole Lloyd being a murderer plot is stupid, since there is absolutely no way it is true. The only joy I am getting from this game is that Marta is hilarious at times. But yeah.....this game sucks.
The two people who "love" this game are actually, legitimately, factually, and objectively wrong. It's a mess and the people who made it should feel bad for wasting everyone's time.
More XenoBlade, with LOTS of ****ing around in Sartorl Marsh. Level 29, and dying repeatedly against the Reckless Godwin unique mob. Gonna try to explore the rest of the swamp and maybe find the endpoint before going back to beat him and complete the Nopon rescue quest. I'm not savvy enough at this game to beat him slightly underleveled.
Also: Dunban's the man. I like how his arts chain together and I find him more entertaining to use as the point character than Shulk or Reyn. Just sayin'.
You can play through the game without anything...really complex tactics if you just go back every so often and do quests. I really recommend this at some point in the next section after you get Riki because there's a tough boss then.
(I was late replying to a Dice Top 10 Game post so I'll just leave it at that and hit around the next one)
